Re: gc ql exploding airbag

Was the compressor running? If so, maybe a bad potentiometer... which then resulted in the system trying to add height to a fully inflated/extended bag?

Cheers,
Steve

Sorry to hear that, let us know how it goes and what the cause. First I have heard of a bag blowing like that did you see/hear it happen?

Silvermax.Had just unhooked the van and reached the drivers door when it went off.Needless to say it startled me.Louder than blowing a tyre.Will post outcome once rectified.
